Wool on Sundays

Once again I'm joining in with the Rainbow Hare's blog monthly link up for Wool  on Sundays.
Two weeks ago I finished the pink and black throw that I had been making as a wedding gift for my hairdresser.
Usually I finish a project and hand it on straight away to the new owner. But this time, I had almost a full week before hand over, which meant that for once, I had something to take for Show and Tell at the August Sunday Stitchers meet up. ( Thank you Helen Mc for taking this photo 😊!)


At the moment I'm using up some of my yarn stash...this is an Italian yarn. Years ago, I bought it on EBay, just on the spur of the moment. It was a bit expensive, so just sitting in the cupboard all these years was such a waste.

As the yarn is so textured, I'm just knitting the simplest throw possible...just garter stitch. It's on 9mm needles so has grown rather quickly.
There's a good chance this throw will be what I post for the October Wool on Sunday...😊

Love, love, love the throw. The colour contrast is so very striking as well as the different textures.

God bless.

I like the fact your clothes and blanket are in coordinating colours. Well planned, or maybe a lucky coincidence.
